Kemp Returning To Nevada For Senior Season

By  | 

Nevada guard Marcelus Kemp has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return to play his senior year for the Wolf Pack.

Kemp had announced his intention to declare for the NBA Draft on April 19th but didn't hire an agent to maintain his collegiate eligibility.

He participated in the NBA Pre-Draft Camp earlier this month and had until today to make his decision.

Kemp says he learned a lot of what he needs to do to make it in the NBA, and is looking forward to his senior year to improve.

Kemp earned first-team All-WAC honors this season after ranking second on the team and third in the league in scoring at a little over 18 points per game. He led the Wolf Pack in three-pointers made and was fourth in the Western Athletic Conference in three-point percentage.

He will be the lone returning starter from last year's team which won a school-record 29 games, won its fourth consecutive WAC regular-season title and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Teammate Ramon Sessions last week announced he is forgoing his senior year and remaining in the NBA draft.
